If the website you most visit via your mobile phone are YouTube and Facebook then you aren’t alone. It has been found that nearly one third of all mobile traffic is accounted by YouTube and Facebook during the early part of 2014 according to a report by Sandvine.
Facebook’s high upstream traffic has seen more photos and videos uploaded to social media than ever before, while YouTube’s downstream traffic also continues to be high.
Google+ has decided to expand its automation services with the all new Stories and Movies feature. This new feature enables travellers to create digital travelogues easier than ever before as you no longer have to sift through all the photos to find your best shots as it curates hundreds of videos and pictures from your vacation to a usable digital record.
This feature has already been launched and is just another attempt from the social media giant to differentiate itself from other popular social media channels.
One of the latest studies conducted by BrandZ shows that Google has edged Apple as the most valuable brand of the year.

Other noticeable changes see Facebook drop 10 places to number 21 while Samsung has risen up 1 place to number 29.
